Success for Sussex as Goodwood’s new season begins in sunshine

Sussex duo Jim Crowley and Amanda Perrett teamed up to enjoy success on the first day of Goodwood’s new season of flat racing.

Crowley notched a 168-1 double, guiding home Foxtrot India at 14/1 and Four Nations at 12/1, the latter for Perrett.

Trainer John Gosden also tasted victory at the double, with his chargesGertrude Bell (7/2) and Investissement (16/1) both doing the business with Nicky Mackay on board.

Mick Channon was another trainer to take a win on a sunny and well-attended opening day at Goodwood. Chris Catlin rode his 6/1 charge Yojimbo to victory.

They go again at Goodwood on Thursday - the same day you can read racecourse MD Adam Waterworth’s latest exclusive column in the Observer on Goodwood’s goings-on.
